Best Metal Riffs

What do you think are the best metal riffs. This DOES include thrash metal, as i expect that to be a big point of contention.
My favorites (not the best):
Walk (Pantera)
Master of Puppets (Metallica)
Creeping Death (Metallica)
Holy Wars... The Punishment Due (Megadeth
Angel of Death (Slayer)
Hallowed be Thy Name (Iron Maiden)
What are your favorites/which ones do you think are the best?

What?! Thrash metal is clearly not included in metal. It's obviously some sort of ambient jazz.

Not to be a subgenre picker, but Thrash Metal is definitely Psuedo-Ambient Black Jazz.



Long time, Phill. Hope all is well with you.

Satan's Siege Mentality is a heavy contender for best riff of the year

The Thrash Metal point was sarcasm, obviously. Both of those riffs are pretty awesome and I'd never heard them before. Thanks!

Are you sure the title of this thread wasn't meant to be "Best Entry Level Metal Riffs"?

Riffs are so '70s, man.

This is 2013. We use notes, man.
